  • Check with your doctor before using any over the counter medicines just in case.

  • I'd check with your doctor first.. you can always use Salin Nasal Spray (the non medicated brand).. though for the time inbetween that it takes to ask your doctor.

  • Nasal decongestant sprays are probably safe to use during pregnancy, but they're not a good idea in general. That's because after using them for two or three days, you start to get rebound congestion that makes you worse off than when you began.

    But my doctor told me Tylonel Cold and Sinus is best to use! GL feelbetter. and call ur doctor to be sure/

  • Nasal decongestant sprays are probably safe to use during pregnancy <<< -----NOT necessarilyTRUE!! Depends totally on the active ingredient

    Saline Nasal Spray is the best... no meds and really helps. Quite often the probelem is dryness in the nasal passages and a decongestant really isn't needed

    CALL AND ASK YOUR DOC THIS
